View Full Version : DW IV - 2D - Ferx - Buitruz Zopiloterix

03 March 2009, 05:44 AM
uhhhuuu ... I don´t finish on time....

This is the last stand for Zopiloterix... for now. I want to finish the image in the future and hope Zopiloterix will fly through the sky, and beyond !! :D

I want to thank everyone who supported and encouraged me during this challenge. That is always the best reward. Despite not having finished, it was fun to participate and a great experience to see the excellent concepts, images and models developed for this challenge. CGSociety rocks! :buttrock:
And yes !!! time for tequila!!! yeaaaaaaa Cheers!! :beer:

Ready for a new Dominance War ! and joining to the dark side of the force and the best team, CGS !! :buttrock: Good luck to all!! :D

I´m thinking on a cyborg concept, a bit silly and crazy cyborg creature named "Buitruz Zopiloterix", a kind type of predator and scavenger cyborg-bird :D Hope to have some sketches soon.

Again good luck to all the CGsociety Troop :D Cheers!! :beer:

03 March 2009, 06:20 AM
love the name that you chose!, I'm struggling with that one myself. Cant wait to see some of your concepts!!
Cheers! :beer:

03 March 2009, 11:28 AM
Hey hey ol' friend. For the glory of CGS and all its members! :)

03 March 2009, 02:17 AM
Here you are Fernando! Couldn't find you. Concept sounds fine so go turn it into beautiful art!
BTW, isn't the name "Buitruz Zopiloterix" a bit redundant? Maybe you should add sth with reference to the cyborg part...

03 March 2009, 11:05 PM
Ok, my first sketches and concepts for Zopiloterix cyborg :D

03 March 2009, 01:50 AM
Great wips! They're so hilarious. I specially like the one with the rocket attached to its back.

03 March 2009, 01:51 AM
Like the cocept upper left coner that could be cool. but like you over all ideer. But think the lower concept maybe to cartoon for the contest theme(but still nice concept would love to see it made anyway haha) :-) Looking forward for more!

03 March 2009, 06:31 AM
This is a really cool concept, but it almost seems more suited to the "Scout" class than to the cyborg one... great sketches!

03 March 2009, 08:07 AM
Jeremy - Glad that you liked the name :D Thanks for your words! Cheers mate !

Martin - Hey my friend!! for sure this challenge will be greate! For the glory of CGS and all its members! Cheers!! :beer:

Gerardo - Thanks friend. You are right about the name.. yes , need to put some cyborg reference on the name :) Really glad that you liked the first concepts. Cheers my friend!! :beer:

Toke - Thanks mate! I really appreciate your words. Yes I´m thinking on a cartoon concept for this challenge :D

Jett - Glad that you liked the concept. You are right, maybe Zopiloterix is best suited on scout class, thanks for point that! Cheers!! :beer:

03 March 2009, 09:11 AM
Hi Fernando,

Niceto see you here. Very good concept sketches.:thumbsup:
Keep it up dude.:beer:

03 March 2009, 11:36 AM
Funny as hell :) The helicopter guy is priceless.

03 March 2009, 01:03 PM
hehe, so cute! I like this dude, keep it up!

03 March 2009, 01:23 PM
really cool, love the vulcher idea! And it's always like fresh breeze to see something different than a huge muscular mountain wih lots of tendons sticking out ;) Will be following this:wip:

03 March 2009, 10:01 PM
Que hay Ferx nice to see you here, again, nice concept dude, I preffer the one that dosen´t have too much metal the other one looks more like robot than a cyborg, cool vehicle too, good luck. and like you say:

03 March 2009, 12:34 AM
Yes, thats very nice work, i like the character a lot!

03 March 2009, 01:10 AM
Really like the feel of the side profile shot, how he has these sleek swoopy lines... still feels cartoonish, but not rediculous, which I quite like. The idea of a bird flying on a fish is a small stroke of upside down genius though!

03 March 2009, 04:55 AM
Hi Ferx

really cool begin, i like a lot the cartoon style, very original for this kind of contest, good luck very high level sketch.

chingon el diseño, jeje.


03 March 2009, 05:58 PM
hey, I love the third concept with the fish machine, buena suerte. :wavey:

03 March 2009, 06:22 PM
Hey Fernando, really cool concepts, just do it a tad more agressive. I like your style and your original ideas. Keep it up!:thumbsup:

03 March 2009, 06:59 PM
NOw Frenando Fernando what have you been drinking again?
Great to see you in friend!
I love the bird on the fish!!!

03 March 2009, 07:10 PM
lovely concept.. love the character

03 March 2009, 09:24 PM
Oh I love it, great to see something completely different.

03 March 2009, 09:33 PM
Love it! I guess the rotor blade is in case the engine fails. Always as well to be sure.

03 March 2009, 10:02 PM
Iban - Thanks my friend! All the best and I following your concept. Cheers!!

Martin - Really thanks my friend! Glad that you liked. Cheers!! :D

Donglu - Thanks for your words and encouragement ! :D

Magdalena - Thanks a lot! Yes, I want to go in a bit different direction with this concept. Glad that you liked

Jorge - Qué onda ? Thanks for your kind words my friend!! I really appreciate it! Cheers!! :beer:

Peter - Thanks!! Really glad that you liked ( Hey, do you enter to the challenge?? )

Samantha - Thanks for your word, I really appreciate it. Totally agree with you. I´m going mor for a design like the profile sketch. Again , really thanks for your comment :D

David - Thanks mate !! Glad that you liked the flying fish machine concept. Cheers!!

Fabio - Hey my friend!! Really thanks for droping here abd for the comment. Yes, you are right, need to work some sketches for the expression on Zopiloterix. Cheers!! :beer:

Remko - Thanks my friend!! Hahahahahaha.... I´m trying a new (and a bit dangerous) beverage ... Absinthe (Absente, Ajenjo) + anis liquor extra dry + tequila (kids, parents and any person on his five, dont try this at home or any other place, seriously... hahahahahahaha ). Again, really thanks for your words! Cheers!! :beer:

Nitin - Thanks mate!! Really glad that tou liked! :D

Jon - Really thanks for your words!! :D

Simon - Really thanks!! You are totally right hahahahahaha... He is a some sort of evil genius, but not much clever. Cheers!! :beer:

03 March 2009, 11:16 PM
Haha, thats quite funny. :) Very nice take on a cyborg, definately not what you'd expect! Lets see some more! Keep it up!


03 March 2009, 01:38 AM
Hey Fernando, start posting up some more samples! stop keeping the audience in suspense! They all adore your works and so do I. My only suggestion is making your modeling a little more realistic feel to it and some crazy stuff. Make them bulky and have some muscle tone, lol.. Otherwise your character rendering looks good in perspective views and I haven't really seen much, but do bring it on more!! good stuff man..putting you on my hot list! hehehe... take care for now my friend...

03 March 2009, 02:07 AM
Lol this is awsome Ferx! Great job :D

03 March 2009, 11:45 PM
Nice work man. I personally like the upper left drawing, but the bottom one definitely has potential for a scout type. Keep up the good work!:wavey:

03 March 2009, 01:06 AM
Hi Ferx!
Nice to see you! Great concepts =)
Hope to see more soon =)

See ya.

03 March 2009, 08:04 AM
:thumbsup: very cool, great sketches so far, love the fish/vehicle

03 March 2009, 09:25 AM
Niklas - Thanks for your words mate! Glad that you liked the concept :D

Peter - Really thanks for your words my friend, I reall appreciate it :) You are right about the realistic look and more for this challenge... but i want to go in the total opposite direction, I´m thinking like I making a game on 2D cartoon style animation :D Again, really thanks for your encouragement! Cheers my friend!! :beer:

Katie - Thanks, really glad that you liked !! :D

Richard - Thanks mate! You are right, maybe I can explore the scout class with this character :D

Filipe - Hey my friend!! Glad to see you! :D and thanks for the encouragement !! Cheers!! :beer:

Matt - Thanks for your words ! Glad that you liked the "rocket-fish" :D

03 March 2009, 09:47 AM
Working a bit on Zopiloterix :D Add a proppeller system and a gatling gun :D I have the idea of some sort of hand grande. Zopiloterix can throw this bombs to his enemys :D

The bombs have their own propulsion system and AI(artifficial inteligence) combat systems :D ( I hope ). This is a concept sheet for the bombs. Thinkingin on 2 options: "silly bombs" or "droid bombs". The bombs are neutron / thermo nuclear bombs .... upsss a bit exagerated.... but looking the demons and norms in this war is the least that can be used.... :D

03 March 2009, 10:01 AM
hey fernando, just wanted to ask when you'll do some updates.. but here they are. followed this for a while.. Its a very funny idea! Zopiloterix riding on the fish made me laugh too..

perhaps you can mix your accesoires ideas for him and make different, eh , sets he uses .. like he mainly drives the fish, but when, leaving the fish behind an in batlle he can still pop out his propeller system and fly a bit, when he has lost ammo...

just an idea of course..

and antoher: maybe u could modify his gattling gun into something funny like the bombs.. which are a cool addition already!

03 March 2009, 10:24 AM
Hehe.. Nice concept Fernando.. like it a lot.. for some reason that vulture robot reminds me of coyote in roadrunner..:surprised

03 March 2009, 11:30 AM
I just love the comedy style of your work :)

03 March 2009, 01:02 PM
I like the pose that Zopiloterix have now.

Great study of bombs. I like the second droid bomb.


03 March 2009, 08:54 PM
I just love these silly bombs of yours, they're so cute :D

03 March 2009, 10:13 PM
Hi Ferx

i can to see the final image a really big, big, struggle with all kind of explosion, for my the style is amazing, i am more animator that illustrator and this style make me crazy want to take and start to move and make some short with them jeje, good luck i really want to see more.


03 March 2009, 10:22 PM
Can't believe I missed out on this thread! Really cool design man, good to see some more cartoony approaches to the topics! I really like the bird, it feels really solid. Maybe you can push the bird theme some more, and make the bombs shaped more like eggs instead of round? And the gun could use a re-design aswell, as it currently doesn't realy fit te character.....maybe give it a barrel shaped like a bird beak or someting :P

Maybe he could use those big claws in battle aswell, maybe he holds one of those bombs in 1 claw? Just a thought! :)

Keep up the good work, u r bookmarked! :D


03 March 2009, 03:14 AM
i can't see any images T_T

03 March 2009, 03:22 AM
very good concepts man!!.. i think the rocket one is my favorite one so far...but it looks really buttkicker with the machine gun too!!...just remember not to make it too powerfull or my Invoker wont stand a chance in a combat :scream: :)


03 March 2009, 05:55 AM
Fernando, those bombs really cracked me up. They're so funny. I like the silly bombs better than the droid bombs, cause they have the same feel as the main character.
It's great to see someone who finds the humorous side of this challenge. :bowdown: :beer:

03 March 2009, 09:50 AM
HAHAHAHA Dude your concepts are soooo coool !
I love these silly bombs.
Zopiloterix is excellent, maybe he's still too much gray...
Keep it up mate.. it seems that your tequila is damn' powerful :D

03 March 2009, 03:52 PM
cool work man, i like the cartonist style you got there, the bomb mode design is great, just wish to see how you will develop it more.

my DWIV entry (

03 March 2009, 06:42 PM
Your Zopiloterix looks great...those silly bombs will be a serious problem for the enemies forces:) Cheers!!

03 March 2009, 08:39 PM
Hehe cool design, i like you cartoon style. Harrier with no wings and helicopter's propeller nice idea. I will keep an eye on you progress!

03 March 2009, 11:48 PM
hey man, nice concept. I like the idea of they moving as helicopters, i think is original. keep working hard.

(aki seguimos apollando a la raza, saludos)

03 March 2009, 11:49 PM
Thanks a lot for your comments! I like your bombs arsenal a lot. keep up a good work! I will keep an eye on your thread:)

03 March 2009, 12:01 AM
HA HA, I love it! Your designs are fresh and fun. The silly bombs are great. I'll be watching this post closely!

03 March 2009, 12:19 AM
:D I like the bomb designs. Concept is so funny and cartoony..
Keep it up
Good luck to you

03 March 2009, 07:18 AM
A bunch of this guys surely would make a good threat against the enemy demons and stuff...
I like your idea, keep the progress comming :P

Good luck! mucha suerte compa!! :D

03 March 2009, 08:25 AM
Awesome bombs! maybe some explosive egg bombs if you want to go toward the lighter comedic side :D

03 March 2009, 09:32 AM
These are awesome! I love the humour in the designs. Keep it up!

03 March 2009, 09:16 PM
Hi there. Well, me too, I like how everything is looking, you’ve got character, design, identity and humor. After looking at it for a couple minutes or so, I wouldn’t change a thing. So my only constructive critic would be to try and come up with a couple more dudes, you never know what you might run into, especially with what you have in that bottle of yours…ha! Take care, and thanks for dropping by.

03 March 2009, 09:36 PM
Zopiloterix is looking awesome! i just love everything u sketch man.. :love:love the style
the bomb design and the how they work is all great! i wish those were real :buttrock:

03 March 2009, 01:51 PM

03 March 2009, 07:47 AM
Working now on some options for Zopiloterix´s main weapon :D The idea is a some sort of launcher for the silly bombs :D one is a crossbow gun and the other is a pneumatic gun :D Think that the pneumatic gun is better suited on the concept :D

03 March 2009, 08:42 AM
You just keep getting laughs out of me :) That silly crossbow is so funny :)

03 March 2009, 07:12 PM
Martin - Thanks my friend :D Really having great time with Zopiloterix ... hahahahha :D And you deserve an extra beer and 5 tequila shots :D, because you opened the fifth page of the thread :D Cheers my friend!! :beer: + (5 tequilas) :D

03 March 2009, 09:49 PM
Very nice sketches, dude. :)

You are becoming better and better. keep it up:beer:

04 April 2009, 01:59 AM
Fernando, your sketches keep getting funnier and funnier. The one on steroids rocks! The bomb's mom is cool too, and maybe her eyes could be the same glowy light blue as the bombs, so that it has more cohesiveness.
Keep them coming man, we need these laughs :beer:.

04 April 2009, 05:12 AM
That last group of sketches are great man, that gatling gun is wicked

04 April 2009, 07:01 AM
Hey Ferx,
Looking cool. Great idea to go in a different direction. Love the style of your work and looking foward to seeing more

04 April 2009, 07:30 AM

David - Thanks mate !! Really fun to go on the silly side hahahaha :D( maybe too much beer and tequila :D) Cheers!! :beer:

04 April 2009, 09:24 AM
I like this :cool: Yes, thats very nice work, i like the character a lot!

04 April 2009, 09:28 AM
Very cool style you're using here~! and YES! the silly crossbow is awesome!

04 April 2009, 11:17 AM
Since everyone’s patting you on the back (and well disserved), I think you need a tough task master. You know, one who will sit down and have a cold one with you, after driving you virtually to the point of dead from exhaustion...sound like a plan? Or we can all just have fun at your tequila joint… :beer:

04 April 2009, 02:21 PM
Funny style, funny designs. Love the whimsical darkwing duck approach you have taken here. Good stuff.

04 April 2009, 01:54 PM
This is Great man:buttrock:! Definitely love the pneumatic gun! Keep up the good work! :beer: (

04 April 2009, 03:06 PM

04 April 2009, 07:09 PM
Neat concepts, like the gattling gun especially :)

04 April 2009, 06:17 PM
Really cool updates Fernando, as usual! I like that crossbow gun:D Cheers my friend!:beer:

04 April 2009, 09:05 PM
Awesome! The Silly bombs are excellent and epic! And I like them 100% for sure! The concept it´s coming out really solid! :thumbsup: As for the weapon the gun from Mama! :D it´s the one that can represent a better whole circle of fun all over the gadgets Zopiloterix will use...I might just keep a better face to her , the glowing eyes suggestion, it´s a good one! I imagine that she could get a bit frowning when she shots a nasty bomb, and depending on the silly bomb, the expression changes...haha :D As for the rocket.. could be also a good thing to play in his expression coz, you can do it, and what it´s best you can do it awesome! Go Fer Go! :arteest: :buttrock:

04 April 2009, 11:53 AM
hihi, these bombs in the crossbow are funny :) would love to see more sketches just for the fun i have with watching them , hehe

but its already a cool cartoony character you got there.. compared to all this dark stuff we others try to do around here..

keep it up man!

04 April 2009, 08:04 AM
A really hilarious concept Ferx.
Great to see some more humor around dominance war.

I love the crazy mechanized robot chicken look. I would say that the weapon I think would look cooler if it was at a larger scale than him. Keeping it always funny so it looks like the recoil of the gun would send him flying.

I think it is all about the guns with this guy. Guns, bullet cases, grenades and good old fashion missiles are good weapons to give him. A crossbow just doesn't suit so much high tech.

04 April 2009, 07:28 AM
Fernando! siempre me encantan tus conceptos :arteest:

those concepts are perfectly suited for a good saturday morning cartoon :D something that we are lacking in mexico.
the pneumatic gun concept is the best lol :buttrock:

04 April 2009, 08:12 AM
cool, you're doing an awesome job man. I love the concepts, everything is turning out great, I love the cross bow especially, you have a great animation style.

04 April 2009, 08:56 PM
Totally crazy and fun real nice work!!! keep the good work up. He could be a tv cartoon series:)

04 April 2009, 04:36 AM
wow i totally missed this, i really enjoyed the progress very entertaining, made me laugh love your work can't wait to see more!!!

04 April 2009, 07:29 AM
Not much free time, but I can't resist the fun to give a try a different concept for Zopiloterix :D This is the abomination version for Buitrus Zopiloterix :D

04 April 2009, 08:23 AM
Huh! thats so funny. I really like the funny characters. but for this challenge maybe we should design more harsh things! Do you agree with me?
I started a funny character for the war. but I'm not sure about the funny caharacters. So I want to make it more hideous instead funny! :(
What do you think?

My DWIV entry:

Good luck my friend:

04 April 2009, 06:35 PM
Hello dude :)

I really like the first one :p The tequila cocktails O_o I need one :D

It could be a cool Scout Unit I think :)

04 April 2009, 07:02 AM
Fernando, I've been waiting for this for so long cause I need some laughs desperately! Your designs are superb, I wish you had the time to develop every single concept. The tequila cocktails would look great on your previous version of Zopiloterix as fuel or lubricant, maybe you could incorporate it somehow.:)

About it being too funny, the brief of the first dominance war said that cartoony characters and anime characters were stricty prohibited :sad:: However, newer rules and briefs don't seem to address this issue explicitly.... My advice is: if you're going for the win, you'll probably have better chances with a more "realistic" character. If you're just trying to learn and have fun, don't mind about it and make it as funny as only you can! Some rules are meant to be broken ;)
You have my support and admiration whatever your choice.:beer:

04 April 2009, 01:01 PM
Tequila Cocktails! Yeah!
I lol'd at his rino/turtle foot 8D! Looking forward to seeing how you compose the find shot!

04 April 2009, 02:47 PM
hahaha tu y tus tequillas ferx :D no mams.

i lol'd so hard :D great concept, ive never seen an abomination fueled by alcohol and much less by the purest most delicious type that of alcohol.... tequilla!
you've instantly moved this cartoon from saturday morning to midnight:beer:

siguele dandole duro.

04 April 2009, 03:13 PM
Hey man..the abomination vesion looks pretty cool...really love your concepts here:cool: :beer:

funny concept, he looks really drunk :beer: good job :thumbsup:

04 April 2009, 03:23 PM
hahaha, very funny:D Great idea my friend! Definitely I want one of those... Keep up the good work!:thumbsup:

04 April 2009, 04:06 PM
I like how this is progressing. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

04 April 2009, 04:09 PM
As always, simply hilarious :D you'd be surprised how far a joke can go. I never got the impression your trying to win anything and that’s good because it frees you to do whatever you want, and that freedom is attractive. You just have fun, hang out, post a lot of good comments everywhere (cant figure out how you keep up) and enjoy the ride, and I think this one will take you far and if it doesn’t, well, we can just take some of that dudes beverage and have a couple rounds. Metele con todo vieja! You’re a great inspiration :beer:

04 April 2009, 05:40 PM
You never stop, do ya? :) Funny and wacky as always. And of course tequila... :beer:

04 April 2009, 05:45 PM
Hi dude,

Very nice and funny character, but i think that the other Zopiloterix looks better.
Waiting for more updates:beer:

04 April 2009, 07:52 AM
Hey my friend! Thanks for the feedbacks. You are so right. we should keep the funny concepts for the war! Long live - viva - the ZOPILOTERIX! :D
And about zopiloterix! if it's in machine class, Just put more machines and robotic things! The last one is half norm-machine ;) I really like the weapons and bombs you made. Just develope them :D I really look for more concepts my friend. Maybe a same propulsion system for all of them make it more funny.
That was just my idea.


04 April 2009, 11:33 AM
Hi speedy, already got the colors done! Looking really cool! I can feel lot of personnality from this character, keep it up!

04 April 2009, 07:52 AM
Funny and creative, haha....i like. :D

04 April 2009, 07:13 AM
Alireza - Thanks for your words mate, glad that you liked the concept. I think that a cartoony characters can be well suited for a good videogames, why not? :D Maybe I´m taking in an informal way this challenge, totally my fault. Cheers!!

Alexandre - Really thanks !! You are right, perhaps Zopiloterix can be a better scout than a cyborg. Cheers!!

Gerardo - Thanks my friend for all of your support and encouragement!! Think that the cartoony rule dont apply for this challenge... I hope. Thanks for the advice, but I´m not going for the win for sure I think that this challenges are a great oportunity to learning, to push our creativity and imagination, and for share in advance our works with people that share the same pasion ( this is the real prize on this challenge :D) and for have great fun. Again, really thanks for your great support, and extra motivation for this challenge. Cheers my friend!! (con mate!)

04 April 2009, 05:32 PM
Wow! Hey my friend. Thanks for the supports and thank you for the good feedbacks dude.
How is the Zopiloterix?
I'm really waiting for the new updates.

04 April 2009, 06:08 PM
Cute thing. Disguise ad its best.
And his secret weapon might be a rubber duck ;)

04 April 2009, 10:26 PM
Love those glowing flasks of tequila - radioactive booze, now there's an idea :)

04 April 2009, 04:23 AM

Simon - Thanks my friend!! Maybe I can develop that idea for a movile drink bar :D hahahaha Thanks for your support ! Cheers!! :beer:

04 April 2009, 04:33 AM
I turn the table again :D A totally different idea for the concept. I can't resist to give a try to all the options for characters in this challenge ( for sure is a side effect of the tequila :D) Now is time for demon princess :buttrock: She is "Diabla Zopilota", the demon princess version of Zopiloterix ( gosh.. too much tequila... hahahahaha)

04 April 2009, 04:43 AM
Wow! I love the boots and the pose! You have so many ideas! Like the concepts they are too much! :D But which one is going to be the last character? :D I really love all of them but the robot zopiloterix is my favorite one!

04 April 2009, 02:23 PM
Hi dude. Nice to see another of your sketches. This one looks very good, very nice colors but Buitruz Zopiloterix continues being my favourite.

keep it up Cheers!! :beer: + tequila

04 April 2009, 05:41 PM
esta bien sexy tu diabla zopilota ferx, jamas pense que diria eso en mi vida :D

maybe you could incorporate some of what you did in the Buitrus Zopiloterix concept that the people liked so much into this new character, zome tequila shots bulging out of her back kinda in a wing pattern i dono :D

04 April 2009, 01:03 AM
You have some pretty great character sketches up here! Love the cartoony style. Keep it up!

04 April 2009, 02:02 AM
Zopiloterix as a demon princess/biker chick, I didn't see that coming! I guess all you've got left to do is the demon lord version of it. I could be spitting fire, or better yet, spitting tequila and using that to start the fire. It would be an awful waste of boose tho :sad:.

As always, hilarious and mad! Well done!:beer:

04 April 2009, 07:18 PM
Alireza - Thanks my friend!! I´m going with Zopiloterix cyborg concept, but want to explore other concepts. Again, yhanks for your support :D

Iban - Thanks for all of your support my friend :D You are right, Zopiloterix will be my final concept, I hope. Cheers!! :beer: + tequila + whisky + rum + vodka

Sergio - Really thanks friend! Glad that you liked this "diabla" :D And great ideas for she! Cheers!! ( Yo creo que voy a seguir con la idea del zopilote, que es lo que tengo mas desarrollado ya que no queda mucho tiempo y yo gastandolo con otros conceptos :D) Cheers my friend!! :beer:

Phill - Thanks mate for your words!! Glad that you liked this last concept!! Cheers!! :D

Gerardo - Really thanks my friend for your support and encouragement :) I dont know if I have time to continue the exploration on other concepts, I need to concentrate on my final idea... hahahahaha Tequila!!! yeaaaaa .... hahahaha, no, seriously, I need to work on Zopiloterix final concept. Cheers my friend!! :beer:

04 April 2009, 07:29 PM
hot twist dude this is looking great the colors are looking very nice too congratulations, I just hope you can make it to the dead line good luck.

04 April 2009, 08:38 PM
jejeje, this last concept is also cool mate...but the Zopiloterix one rocks harder in my opinion..:), youre doing a good creative work here :cool:

04 April 2009, 08:47 PM
Ha! Those boots! :D Some great ideas you've got...

05 May 2009, 01:28 AM
Hes kewl mate massive work good on yah :buttrock:

05 May 2009, 05:09 PM
hey bro, che me encanto tu imagen, pero por lo q leí no es tu final. q pena, tiene toda la onda.
Anyhow in my opinion you should win some sort of prize for best team mate or something, your support to all the other artist was massive, I have no idea how you managed, but I couldn’t find a thread without one of your comments, so that’s really what’s important. Great having met you on this comp, hope to catch you soon, all the best. Viva Zopiloterix cabrones… Un fuerte abrazo! :beer:

05 May 2009, 07:21 PM
Darn time! :shrug: Ohh! Fer I think you have a wonderfull character design in here, nobody cant´s say they didn't enjoy this idea! So you better finish it! alright? :thumbsup: Coz I was already having visions of those silly bombs on the foreground saying Waah! all over the piece! haha :D So make time and efort buddy coz your work must be shared! :beer:

COMO? :eek: Pero si el era elganador! Como que no se pudo! FrrrGrrr Fer! Ya te voy a quitar ese tequila como comentan por aca! jajaja...hey estaria bien si al menos pones la mascota de vercion Zopi en peque ? :rolleyes: Lo cual estaria muy padre!

05 May 2009, 03:19 AM
Nando, it really doesn't matter that you didn't get to finish on time, cause you achieved what you set out to do, right? You learned, had superb interaction with other CGS guys and put a smile on all of our faces. And you made the funniest character in this whole comp.
That makes you a winner already!
